Staying at the forefront of modern science is one of our distinguishing features

This helps us to provide a first class service in looking after the health of our patients eyes. Dolphins Optometrists are proud to have at their disposal an ultra-wide-field retinal imaging machine, Optos, and a structural layer analyser, Zeiss OCT.

Optos

The Optos machine produces very wide angle retinal images. Traditional retinal photographs capture an area approximately 45 degrees wide. Optos produces Optomap images that are 200 degrees wide! The images truly speak for themselves.

More visibility of the retina helps to identify signs of retinal complications that can then be addressed accordingly. Certain changes that Optos helps to identify from an earlier time scale include changes in the eye related to diabetes, blood pressure and retinal tears/detachments. Whilst we would always hope that there are no complications, early detection often means more successful resolution.

Zeiss OCT

OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) is a technology used to measure the layers of the retina of the eye.  A simple, non-contact test which takes just a few seconds, it allows us to identify any potential problems with the retina at an early stage.This means the early detection and management of common diseases such as Glaucoma, Diabetes and Age Related Macula Degeneration.

OCT analysis is frequently used in glaucoma monitoring and macular degeneration cases. Having these scans as part of a routine examination establishes a base line upon which comparisons can be made at successive eye tests. Any changes found can then be managed earlier rather than later.
